You create an SDF file
with a schema whose feature classes reflect the layer structure
of a drawing file. Examine the original drawing layers, so you can check
the resulting SDF file to see if it is structured correctly.
To examine the drawing layers
- If you have not already done so, copy
the sample files for the tutorials to a directory on your hard drive.
See Lesson 1: Get Ready to Use the Tutorials.
- Start AutoCAD Map 3D.
- Click Open Drawing.
Open the sample map called DWGMap.dwg.
The DWGMap.dwg drawing
has multiple drawing layers.
- In the Tool-based Ribbon Workspace, click Home
tabAutoCAD Layers panelLayer
Properties. Examine the drawing layer information.
The layers in the drawing
are listed, along with their properties.
